{Nature} River visit, and guess what we saw!

Day 4!  (Although I'm a day late.) 

We went to the river the other day and had a lot of fun.  I'm so thankful to live in such a beautiful part of the country.  We are surrounded by lovely landscapes - all attesting to the glory of our awesome and creative God.  I'm also thankful for time spent together as a family, enjoying each other and the outdoors.

I think this is a great blue heron?  We can never see them up close.

There's nothing like spending time together throwing and skipping rocks.  Simple pleasures :)

Who says you need toys?

We saw something that I've never seen before in real life - TWO bald eagles!  Can you see this one in the picture below?

They were on the other side of the river so we didn't get to see them up close.  My camera won't zoom very far, but you can tell what they are.  So, so cool!  And then, of course, this week's bird selection from the Burgess Bird Book had to be the bald eagle :)

Making mud pies.

Two beauties :)

And another one, fast asleep :)

The perfect place to climb.

Ahhh, ladybugs :)

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
For the Lord is the great God,
And the great King above all gods.
In His hand are the deep places of the earth;
The heights of the hills are His also.
The sea is His, for He made it;
And His hands formed the dry land.

Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
Let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For He is our God,
And we are the people of His pasture,
And the sheep of His hand.

(Psalm 95:1-7)

What are you thankful for today?
